“Pycom’s goal with our GoInvent World Series is to provide developers the skills and knowledge necessary to create and connect their devices to the Internet. Semtech’s LoRa Technology is a leading platform for IoT applications, offering unique advantages for developers that allow them to simplify device deployment and get products to market faster,” said Fred de Haro, CEO at Pycom. “LoRa Technology offers the building blocks for developers to quickly realize the return on investment (ROI) their customers want. Participants will leave GoInvent empowered, with a proof of concept that is well connected.”
At the events, Semtech and Pycom will conduct in-depth workshops to introduce attendees to IoT applications and LPWAN technologies. Workshops will focus on setting up one’s LoRa-based hardware, connecting to a low power wide area network (LPWAN), middleware and connecting to the Cloud, optimizing one’s application for low data, project set-up/hacking, and a Q&A with experts in the field. Pycom’s GoInvent World Series is sponsored and supported by a number of other partner companies, including Mouser Electronics and Digital Catapult.
“Pycom’s GoInvent World Series enables developers looking to successfully deploy a LoRa-based solution to work directly with experts in the field,” said Steven Hegenderfer, Senior Director of the Developer Ecosystem in Semtech’s Wireless Sensing and Products Group. “By sponsoring this event series, Semtech aims to increase the awareness and accessibility of LoRa Technology globally through hands-on experience with our technology. Semtech is committed to working with the LoRaWAN-based ecosystem to develop and stimulate the growth of LoRa Technology and the LoRaWAN protocol. Providing developers with access to LoRa-based resources allows them to build robust, innovative IoT applications and continue to drive the ecosystem’s success.”
